[ARCHIVED] Disability Pride Month Resources and Events

Disability Pride Month is celebrated every July to commemorate the passing of the landmark Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) in July 1990 and is an opportunity to honor the history, achievements, experiences, and struggles of the disability community.
